Post of­fice rob­bery: ap­peal for cul­prit

Wexford People - - NEWS -

GAR­DAÍ are mak­ing progress with their in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the at­tempted rob­bery at Foulksmills Post Of­fice in mid-April.

On the af­ter­noon of Tues­day, April 17, post­mistress Caro­line Foxe was speak­ing to an 83-year-old cus­tomer when a dis­guised armed rob­ber at­tempted to steal cash from her busi­ness. The man, stand­ing 6ft tall, pushed a green bag over the counter and told Caro­line to put the money in the bag, but she re­sisted. Hav­ing de­manded money three more times, he even­tu­ally gave up and left.

Su­per­in­ten­dent John McDonald said: ‘The in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the rob­bery is con­tin­u­ing. We want to thank every­body who has helped us. We are pro­gress­ing with the in­ves­ti­ga­tion but have more en­quiries to make.’

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion can con­tact gar­daí on 051 426030.
